My Dell Inspiron 2650 laptop developed a unique problem. The spacebar stopped functioning for some reason. All other keys respond to the mouse just fine. I had recently installed Registry Mechanic, but that was about a week ago. It sounds like the signal from the spacebar key is not being transmitted.

Any ideas? Could sure use some help.

Thanks, a lot.

It sounds a lot like a mechanical failure. If you enter your BIOS setup and the space bar doesn't work there, you almost surely have a hardware issue. You could also boot from an MS-DOS floppy if there's no place to actually "try" the space bar in the BIOS. :)
